Miles Garrett (Best Hooligan Everrrrr) from CHASING FOREVER DOWN

“Pay up!” a blonde with nappy dreadlocks shouts out.

Ohhhh Lord! Miles Gray Garrett is my absolute favorite book boyfriend everrrrrrr!!!! He is one of those guys who never backs down from anything. He's the best West Coast Hooligan (yeah, yeah. I know that's 'my opinion' LOL) and the most reckless. He's the one who's going to take the most dangerous wave imaginable. He'd rather break every bone in his body than not be out in the water on his green and silver surfboard. (Fun fact: Miles's surfboard is green and silver like Aralie's, from American Girl On Saturn, Up Up and Away dress because I'm a Slytherin ((and emerald is my favorite color.)), and Nikki worked the house colors into both books because of it. #LoveHer) Miles is gritty and rough, but he can be really deep and thoughtful when he's not yelling and throwing punches like the Hooligan he is. He is extremely loyal to his friends and like the other WCHs he's very territorial of the Horn Island waters.

Miles laughs and shakes his head. “You’re either deaf or just fucking stupid. The pier to those rocks – my water. The pier and beyond – your water. Now get the fuck out of here or I’m gonna fuck you up and drown you in my water!”

Yeah, stay out of his waters. Miles becomes a huge character in the rest of the Drenaline Surf books and gets a really hot new girlfriend who sales non-evil voodoo dolls. ;) I hear she's kind of awesome!

Make sure you guys pick up a copy of CHASING FOREVER DOWN by Nikki Godwin!

After seventeen-year-old Haley Sullivan meets a mysterious stranger who plays by his own rules, she's more than determined to learn every trick of the trade from the master himself. But her dream-chasing mentor disappears after that night, and according to the local newspapers, he's been dead for years. Knowing he's very much alive, Haley enlists best friend Linzi to join her on a scavenger-hunt-style road trip that ultimately lands them in the surf town of Crescent Cove, California. Mystery guy is no mystery here, though – he's Colby Taylor, the west coast's biggest professional surfer.

 If Haley wants to talk to the wave rider again, she'll have to get past his four intimidating "bodyguards" who are highly skilled in the business of sending starstruck fangirls back to where they belong. Haley is up for the challenge if it means chasing her dreams and escaping the perfectly corporate future that's been planned for her. But dealing with these bodyguards isn't exactly what Haley imagined it'd be. Sure, being thrown off a jet ski sucks, but falling in love with one of them might just be worse.
